Office for Exceptional Children (OEC)


Dayton Public Schools Office for Exceptional Children is committed to meeting the unique needs of students with disabilities by offering a continuum of services as outlined in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEIA). Dayton Public Schools offers free and appropriate public education to children ages 3 through 21 that meet special education eligibility requirements in one of thirteen disability categories in accordance with applicable state and federal laws, rules, and regulations.

The DPS Office for Exceptional Children registers new K-12 students with existing IEPs through the Student Assignment Office.

Transfer students are reminded to please bring a hard copy of their transcript (high school), evaluations, and existing Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and/or Evaluation Team Report (ETR) when registering with DPS, to ensure proper placement.
